Since my fantasy will never become a reality, I'll search high and low for pieces that will fit the my style. Speaking of "my style," I'm not quite sure what it is. I like to call it Comfortable Chic. A home that you can walk in and say, "oooohh...that looks comfty." Yet also say..."oooohh...how chic!" Hahaha...did that make any sense?
I'm certain if a designer walked into my house, they would go, "what the heck is going on here?" ;P
And I'll say, "let me introduce my home to you."
I love finding home treasures yet living in the suburbs makes this quite difficult.
I'll go anywhere for pieces that speak to me - flea markets, ikea, estate sales, homegoods...to name a few.
I like being in my home. I enjoy moving pieces around and thinking of what I can do next.
I have a very accommodating loving husband who will hang nails when I want him to (although it does take a couple reminders) and say, "that looks great!" even though he may not quite understand my enthusiasm when I find a new white pitcher.
I like the cottage feel yet my home is a traditional colonial so I'm creating my own style - remember comfortable chic.
I have no design background...I get my inspiration from researching and finding something that speaks to me.
So there you have it. Nice to meet you!
